My trip to Madrid, last year, was “my last trip” before Corona virus kept us all locked down in our houses and away from travelling abroad.
My memories of Madrid are vivid, colorful and full of tasteful flavours of the Spanish tapas.
So when it came to painting something about Madrid I thought of those lovely little shops that serve Paella that I would love to visit again.
and in a closer look
– Portugal –
Lisbon – Portugal
Copenhagen – Denmark
Copenhagen – Hans Christian Andersen’s home town –
A city like fairy tale.
The rooftops of the buildings was the most inspiring of all and if you look my sketch book of Copenhagen this is how it looks :
I should not forget to mention the unparalleled Design, that of the Scandinavian countries – an ode to practicality!
And the dreamy National Gallery – especially the section with the Danish painters I visited and I was really amazed !!
You can get an idea here from the official site of the National Gallery.
What was really new for me was how Danish people were visiting the National Gallery:
There were comfortable large sofas in the rooms, that you could sit and stare the paintings for hours in a really comfortable and relaxing way like you were in your living room! Also in all theGallery there where many many babies, toddlers and children crawling at the floors and interact with the view of those great paintings!
Lisbon is a city that I would love to spend some months or years of my life. It was perfect match for me and nurtured my inspiration in many ways.
I was amazed from the food, culture and architecture and I visited a fantastic museum of medieval carriages , which was really , really impressive! Check here if you are interested this strange theme Museum.
